I have been dining at the Malaysian grill for a long time. I eat here 3-4 times a month. The food is fresh and well prepared. The service is professional and courteous. Prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend this establishment.

Each time I go to Malaysia Grill I leave a "very happy camper!" The food is consistently good; it's quiet enough to converse easily; the prices are very reasonable. The other night I had basil chicken and it was excellent. I just regret not discovering this neighborhood restaurant earlier but, having found it, I have eaten there a half dozen... More

Popular local restaurant, judging from full tables and substantial take-away traffic. Not however, Malaysian Chinese as we know it from from Malaysia or Singapore. I had the Nasi Lemak, which had a nice Singapore curry on the side. A bit sweeter than expected, but not unpleasant with the coconut rice. The anchovies or Ikan bilis were a disappointment, cooked in... More

In the past week, I have eaten dinner (last week) and then lunch. The food both times was tasty - no complaints at all! More than that the place remains quiet and the service is prompt and pleasant. Is it truly outstanding? Not really but it is very, very good. I am happy to have discovered it in my 'hood!

Awesome restaurant. Jam packed with patrons and those waiting for take away, and rightly so. Very authentic Malay cuisine. Delicious Char Keow Teow. Hubby was very happy with his Beef Rendang. Large servings. Attentive staff, great food and humming atmosphere that speaks for itself.

Six of us had lunch there yesterday and were delighted ! Service was prompt and professional and the food was excellent. I had lemongrass chicken that came with pineapple chunks, sauteed green and red peppers, and celery. The chicken was tender and I opted for brown rice. Delicious ! My friends had fish ball soup, a tofu dish, spicy asparagus... More

I've been here five times already and each time the food is great! I've sampled most of the entrees, but my favorite is the Chinese Sausage Fried Rice!

Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
